Which players might be playing their last game for Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday?

Adebayor And Saha V Arsenal

The focus might be on incomings at Tottenham Hotspur this summer, but there will be plenty of players ushered out of the exit door as well.

Tottenham Hotspur fans will mostly likely be shortlisting their preferred summer signings at the moment, but it will also be important for the club to also move on anyone they believe they will have no use for next season, and this Sunday might be the last match at the club for several players.

At the back, the experience of William Gallas and Brad Friedel has been called on many times this season, but they have both now been usurped in the first team and Spurs will surely look to either move them into coaching roles or onto to another team this summer.

One man who still has a first team place but could leave is Benoit Assou-Ekotto, who has been the subject of prolonged speculation about his future throughout the season. Andre Villas-Boas has often left the Cameroonian out even when he has been available, and Spurs are likely to add a new left back to their squad this summer, with Assou-Ekotto perhaps set for a move back to France.

In their central midfield, there are three players who have all featured for the first team that might leave White Hart Lane. Scott Parker has been a shadow of his former self for most of the season, and might be allowed to join Harry Redknapp at QPR or another Premier League side. Jake Livermore has failed to impress in his appearances this season, and it seems unlikely he will ever become a first regular for Spurs making a summer move a possibility.

Tom Huddlestone is a more difficult case to predict, with the midfielder enjoying a run in the first team in recent weeks. Huddlestone has been impressive at the base of the midfield in a 4-3-3 system, and if Villas-Boas opts for this formation next season it is easy to see a place for him in the squad. However even then Huddlestone might feel that it is worth leaving for a club where he will have more guarantees about his first place.

One man who is still knocking around is David Bentley, who Spurs will be desperate to see the back of if at all possible.

Finally Spurs could sell one, both or neither of their current senior strikers. Emmanuel Adebayor has sprung to life in their last two matches, but has made himself an unpopular figure throughout the season, whilst Jermain Defoe will likely be no more than a bit part player for Spurs next season and might leave to find first team football ahead of the World Cup in 2014.
